"Ubuntu is moving away from the open source Eucalyptus platform

"OpenStack is now only a tech preview in Natty 11.04, but the
massive momentum behind OpenStack is undeniable. OpenStack has a
large ecosystem of over 50 contributing members including NASA,
Rackspace, Dell, Cisco, Brocade and Canonical In its short life -
